Pronunciation: jerry-attic-wear

Sentence: Kim climbed the ladder in search of geriatticwear from her grandmother's old trunk because it was considered campy and hip. She found some tie-dye shirts, torn jeans, granny glasses and peace signs. Her grandmother smiled, remembering when she, too, dug around in her grandmother's closet for campy clothing from the flapper era. It was truly regeneration -- everything old becomes new again to the next generation.

Etymology: geriatric: old, obsolescent, worn out + attic: a place or room in the roof of a house used to store old articles of clothing, toys and furniture + wear: outfit, ensemble
